You are sitting down for a much needed pre-made meal just one week before Thanksgiving. Before you begin to eat, your dinner party draws cards and yours says "low cost meal". As you're handed a paper bag, you watch everyone else enjoy the take-n-bake casserole they were lucky enough to receive. You're not exactly happy with your dinner but it's only one night; soon you'll be sitting down to a home-cooked Thanksgiving meal. To many in the Omaha metro, food insecurity isn't a game; this is their reality. This could be the reality of a child who depended on school for proper nutrition but is now learning at home. This could be the reality of your coworker, next-door neighbor or a family member. Often the only thing separating a person from food insecurity and/or homelessness is luck, just like the paper bag card. After dinner everyone enjoys equal dessert (if choosing to donate a frozen turkey or ham) and uses the interactive infographic/short documentaries to become educated on food waste, homelessness and how your donation helps those in the Omaha Metro area.
